It’s Earth Week! What better way to celebrate than to take a visit to Horicon Marsh. Waterfowl migration is dwindling but diversity is still high. Highway 49, Ledge Road and multiple areas around the Auto Tour have great viewing of Ruddy Ducks, Blue and Green-winged Teal, American Wigeon, Gadwall, Northern Shoveler and a variety of shorebirds as they begin to move in.
Yellow-rumped Warblers have made their way to Wisconsin as well as Purple Martins. Wood Ducks and Hooded Mergansers are sitting on eggs and Great-horned Owl young have been seen. It’s a great time to get out to Horicon Marsh and take in the beginning of spring migration!
